Hi Susan....Nice to see a face with the name....(jar617 here) anywho...........I grow herbs each year for some of the local stores in town. It is easier to sell to them when there is a variety of herbs in the flat instead of an entire flat of oregano or parsley or whatever.... The larger nurseries want businesses to buy in whole flats.... so if you can, or want to, offer mixed flats of herbs to local places like the grocery store that carries flowers or even the local feed mill. Ours only carries plants for one month out of the year and then that's it til the next year.
Also, a bottle of rooting hormone does wonders for me. I can duplicate almost anything but sticking a stem in rooting compound and a mix of 1/2 peat and 1/2 sand. Keep everything moist (not wet) until they root. This is how many nurseries buy their stock in the first place is by finding a supplier of rooted stock they can grow out and sell when the growing season hits....... anyways...just my two cents worth
wanted to stop in and say HI!!! so HI!!!! glad to see you.
